Hi Craig!
Beste Christoph!

This conversation made me discover that in 1.3.4 cvs it doesn't 
matter wether you pick runaround or not, a text frame on top of 
another always makes the text to runaround. (I think this is a bug 
but I didn't check with previous versions.)

And... unless you have an unregular shape, (or at least not one that 
has four 90 degrees angles) there is simply (and obviously) no 
difference between checking the 1st check box AND the 2nd or checking 
only the 1st one.

I guess that it would be clearer to have these 2 sub options indented 
a bit below the main Runaround option. Would be a little more 
obvious, in my view.

Your turn! :-)

? bient?t!
